Inspired by true events, Netflix’s ‘The Law According to Lidia Poët’ is an Italian biographical period drama series created by Davide Orsini and Guido Iuculano. Set in the patriarchal society of the late 19th century, an ambitious and rebellious woman named Lidia Poët is forbidden to practice law as it is considered a profession for just the men of society. Forcing her way into the law scene by appealing to overturn the court’s decision, she also investigates murders on the side.

The Royal Palace of Turin at Piazzetta Reale, 1, in Turin is seemingly transformed into the editorial staff of the Gazzetta Piemontese to tape a few key scenes for the series. The filming unit sets up camp at several other sites across Turin, including Palazzo Falletti di Barolo at Via Corte d’Appello, 20/C, Museo Carceri Le Nuove at Via Paolo Borsellino, 3, Piazza Carignano, Teatro Regio at P.za Castello, 215, Basilica of Superga at Strada Basilica di Superga, 73, and Borgo Cornalese just outside of Villastellone.
Besides Turin, a couple of other sites across the region of Piedmont also make a cameo in the Italian show. The Teatro Vittorio Alfieri at Via Teatro Alfieri, 2, in the comune of Asti, serves as one of the filming locations while the Piemont Railway Museum at Via Coloira, 7 in the comune of Savigliano serves as another production spot.
For shooting purposes, the production team of ‘The Law According to Lidia Poët’ also seemingly travels to Rome, the capital city of Italy.
